Ecopoetics Writing Workshop

July 20 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

point reyes beaches

What is ecopoetics? The word’s root, poetics, comes from the Greek “poiesis,” meaning “to make.” Its prefix, eco, comes from the Greek “oikos,” meaning “family and house.” Given this etymology, we might understand ecopoetics, simply, as home making—the practice of cultivating a healthy and livable place. Certainly such a practice could be supported by any number of different activities, from writing, visual art, and performance, to farming, ecological restoration, community organizing, and activist work.

 

In this workshop, we will explore the term ecopoetics through our own creative, site-specific writing and art practices on Point Reyes National Seashore. We will ask: what does it mean to write poetry in a time of unprecedented ecological crisis? What role might experimental writing play in shaping or changing cultural attitudes about the natural world? In addition to creating poems and other textual and art objects, we will take our ecopoetics practices beyond the page through active engagement with local ecologies and environmental issues, and we will write in response to these expanded ecopoetics practices.

 

No previous creative writing experience is required for this workshop. Participants are encouraged to experiment with hybrid writing and art practices. All are welcome!

Effective Mineral Sun Protection for your Point Reyes Getaway

Even on overcast days, you're going to get a lot of UV rays. Here are some top mineral sunscreens to help you avoid dangerous chemicals as well as overexposure to the sun.


There's nothing as grounding and healing as nature. ⠀

The park is open. Let's take it slowly. Thoughtfully. ⠀

These trails remain closed: Mesa Road from the Commonweal entrance to Palomarin Trailhead, Chimney Rock Road, Mount Vision Road, South Beach Access Road, Sir Francis Drake Blvd. southwest of its junction with Drakes Beach Road.⠀

Remember to keep two meters (six feet) of space between you and other people who aren’t part of your own household.⠀

Bring a mask to wear if you need to be closer than 6 feet from others, and if you are going to restaurants or stores in town. ⠀

One person at a time will be allowed in restrooms.⠀

Bear Valley loop trails will be limited to one way traffic.⠀
Campgrounds, visitor centers, and picnic tables remain closed.⠀

Water fountains are not available, so be sure to bring plenty of water with you.⠀

Be sure to bring your own hand sanitzer.⠀
